To maintain good overall health and wellbeing, we need the right amounts of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, fatty acids and other nutrients every day to support all the body’s key functions.
However, for many people, getting the right amount of nutrition from food alone can be challenging.
Nutritional supplements are designed to provide you with any nutrients missing from your diet or that you’re not consuming in sufficient quantities.
Supplements come in the form of tablets, capsules, powders and liquids. They are designed to complement your diet and top up any shortfalls – or address any deficiencies – of specific nutrients.
There are many different nutritional supplements available. Some are synthetic, meaning the nutrients they provide have been created in a laboratory or industrial process, while some are natural, meaning they are derived from natural sources or ingredients.
In this blog, we outline the reasons why natural supplements are so important.
